What’s In A Name?

As it is written in Luke 1:31, when the angel Gabriel informed Mary that she would conceive a son through the Holy Spirit, she was instructed to name Him “Jesus.” But in actuality, what she heard Gabriel speak was the Hebrew name “Yahushua” pronounced Yah-hoo-shoo’-ah, which in Hebrew means “God saves.” When this name was later translated from Hebrew to Greek, then from Greek to Latin and finally from Latin to English, it eventually ended up “Jesus.” (Here is a detailed article for those interested in the evolution of the Lord’s name.)

So why does this even matter? Is not our Lord humble? Will He not answer to any of His many names and titles spoken in any language? Of course He will. I only mention it for the following reason…

On page 46 of the free ebook I Am Coming! (Volume 6) you will find the following prophecy which was given to us by God back in January of 2012:

“I, God, your Heavenly Father, call on everyone to pray from today in the Name of Yahushua, My Beloved Son. The reason for this is that the antichrist will use this name: ‘Jesus Christ’ as his identity in the tribulation, once My bride is gone. It will be hard, hard times, as never seen on this earth. I have already called many of My bride to pray in My Son’s original Name: Yahushua. Make it a habit My beloved, the Name Yahushua has much strength and is extremely pleasing to Me, your God.”

Okay. So, if it pleases our Father, the giver of every good thing (both the common and the miraculous), that we should come before Him and make our requests in the name that He actually gave His one and only Son, then, in humble obedience, that is just what I will do, because I love Him and desire very much to please Him. After all, what else can you give a loving Father who already has everything?
